In August 2005, XU Zhen together with his team climbed the 8848.13 meters high Mountain Everest. They succeed in cutting the hill top and took it down from the mountain. His video installation “8.848-1.86” (2005) documents an expedition to Mount Everest. Here, XU Zhen removed 1.86 meters of the mountain’s peak and transported it home to be exhibited in a large display cabinet. The video, among other allusions, is a subtle and humorous commentary on China’s policy of expansion.
